Macclesfield Town centre-half Keith Lowe has urged his fellow teammates to “take the positives” from their recent performances to keep spirits high.
The Silkmen are still searching for their first win on their return to the Sky Bet League Two, however performances suggest a maximum points haul is not far away.
Last weekend Mark Yates’ suffered a last-gasp defeat to league leaders Lincoln City and travel to Morecombe this Saturday.
The Shrimps occupy 22nd place in the table, having claimed one win in all competitions.
“We have to take the positives, as not doing so only breeds negativity,” insisted Lowe.
“We need to pick ourselves up and try to build on the good things we’ve done.
“The first half against Lincoln certainly wasn’t good enough, but we showed positive signs in the second half which meant losing the game was a kick in the teeth.
“But we have to get over the sucker punch, as this Saturday is a big chance to pick up three points.”
The 33-year-old has started the last three Macc matches and his experience could over the coming weeks -
“At the start of the season I was on the bench watching the lads” said Lowe.
“This gave me an insight into their game, so slotting into the back line hasn’t been too difficult.
“I’m really happy to be starting now and we all have to be fired up for Saturday.”
